Sponsored Projects & Research Administration

The Office of Sponsored Projects & Research Administration (OSPRA) is dedicated to promoting a supportive environment for research, scholarly, and creative endeavors of faculty and academic staff at USI.  OSPRA supports faculty and staff in their efforts to seek and secure extramural funding, monitors compliance of Federal, State, & University related regulations, administers the review of human subjects research, provides grantsmanship and compliance training, and assists in non-financial post-award administration

Announcements

OSPRA Writing Groups Continue This Summer

Back by popular demand, OSPRA faculty and administrator writing groups will continue to meet each Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. throughout the summer months.

OSPRA writing groups are for anyone pursuing (or thinking about pursuing) the NSF Early Career Development program, the NIH R15, or any other federal, state, or private funding grant or contract opportunity.

Attend as many sessions as you'd like and reap the rewards:

  • Dedicate 90 minutes each week to your project or research agenda
  • Meet other faculty and potential collaborators
  • Work with OSPRA staff to locate opportunities and create winning proposals
Contact  for more information.

The USI Grant Management Guide is now available.

This comprehensive resource for faculty and staff who are applying for, or have received external funding, is filled with helpful tips, policies and procedures, sample forms, and much more.
